Intraoral hemorrhage is an undesirable and emergency condition, and it can also occur spontaneously. Clinicians sometimes face difficulty in identifying the hemorrhage points and the causes of hemorrhage, as well as difficulty in the hemostatic procedures. Here, the authors present two rare cases of spontaneous intraoral hemorrhage related to dental calculus. The hemorrhage points and causes of hemorrhage were determined after removing the removable intraoral components, including the dental calculus.
